4 Home Buying Features You Might Not Know People Care About
Selling or thinking of selling your home? Here are 4 key areas buyers focus on when looking at a house:
Although important in all rooms, cleanliness is of utmost importance in the bathroom. Making sure the grout is clean and there are fresh, unused amenities (soap, towels, loofa, etc) can go a long way in making sure your bathroom is feeling fresh and welcoming.
The room you are going to spend the most time in cannot be overlooked. Whether it’s entertaining family and friends or just relaxing with a good book, your living space needs to feel inviting and cozy. Here are some tips to make sure your living area is in tip-top shape:
Remove extra clutter to keep it open for easy mobility.
Keep pillows and blankets to a minimum so that there is plenty of space to sit and relax.
Make sure all of your window sills, mantles and other seldomly used areas are freshly dusted and clean.
Many people consider this the most important space in the house. The kitchen will be used for entertaining, cooking meals, and serving holiday feasts so functionality is key. Make certain to remove any clutter and take away any small appliances that do not add to the overall décor of the area. Ensure everything is clean, including the inside of the fridge, as it will assist the buyer in envisioning themselves cooking and entertaining.
[Scents & Odors]
Sight. Touch. Hearing. Taste.
Scent can often be overlooked when getting your home ready to sell. The senses have a huge impact on what a buyer thinks and how they remember a home.
Make sure there is no overwhelming scents (good or bad) that would alter a potential buyer’s memory of the space.
Helpful Tip: place a dab of vanilla on a light bulb or two throughout the house to give it a welcoming smell that is not overpowering.
Overall, make certain your home is appealing to the senses, clean, and clutter-free. This will ensure it leaves a lasting positive impression on possible home buyers.
